Do A Green Screen Video Project

If you're a middle school teacher, or if you can put green butcher paper onto your classroom wall, you can make a green screen video. Green screen videos are a great way for students to present on a topic, or act out a scene, and transport themselves somewhere else.

Here are some images taken from Mrs. Bosworth's class. Her students dressed up like a famous person and memorized a speech about that person's life. Now students will be able to use WeVideo on their Chromebooks to send themselves somewhere else. WeVideo has a free trial for teachers to let students use all of the features, but the general version is always free.
